No! No! Why?
Although I hear that "tlc" is funny to those in the medical profession, for the rest of the world, it is a show that makes you want to cringe, and when you're not cringing, you're wishing the writers weren't trying to be The League of Gentlemen. You can see the jokes coming from a mile away, and when they finally do come, they are overplayed.
Reece Shearsmith is disappointing as Dr. Flynn, as he is too giddy (over-enthusiastic?) He does not do himself justice. As for the supporting characters, none really make a splash, except for Nurse MacKenzie, who has absolutely no redeeming virtues whatsoever.
Despite all this, we can't deny that we come back each week for more. If not just to collect ammo for satire.
